Pretty sure the knockback comes with a conal so when tanking him the second tank placing circles can not be in the conal or else he'll get one shotted.

I've seen videos of people tanking Kephess just fine with their backs to the wall.

Remember, Breath of the Masters causes the circles to drop from the target; it is completely unrelated to the one-hit KO.

There are two additional things to look for in this fight that you didn't mention:

1) Above 58%: Kephess will put a very nasty DOT on whoever has aggro after doing his red-circle jumps. It is strongly preferred to do a tank swap when that happens. The debuff icon is orange-ish and looks like a guy holding a lightsaber.

2) Below 58%: Taunting during breath of the masters might be too late. We've noticed that it works a lot better to taunt him immediately after the knockback instead (which should happen just before he casts breath of the masters). Any damage taken after breath of the masters will one-shot the tank having the debuff.
You got me thinking - how long does this dot last? if you happen to know? I'm aware of its existence, just not of its duration.
